Given the rumour of walker being injured I wouldnae punt it past them to have a frozen pitch tomorrow. They're running scared. Cannae wait til we hump them.

Thinking it's Just Routine.. Up and down the Country - Every Pitch has to be inspected for Frost or dog skite, Buckie Bottles, Rubbish etc.. :wink:

I played this morning and it was very heavy. Lot of pitches off.

Obviously Tynecastle should have better drainage than public parks but another night off heavy rain and it could be dodgy.

Their pitch is a total cow field. Perfect for their hoof baw style.

:faf: This is a stadium that struggles to have flushing toilets so what gives you the impression that it will have better drainage than a public park?

How many times have we heard that their best player or players are injured before a derby throughout the years? Then make a miraculous recovery.

Who cares if walker is injured he's not that good

If Walker is genuinely injured then the sprinklers will already be on.

He twisted his ankle when an old wifie squeezed passed him in the Co-op and he fell to the ground like a sack of tatties.

Gary Lineker thinks otherwise.

He's probably their best player just now in great form so I would welcome his absence.

Walker trained for Hearts this morning.

Not a chance he'll be absent but equally not a chance our manager or players will think he'll be missing. Hahahahahearts have pulled this nonsense far too often for anyone to take any notice. It's more than a little tiresome

He is. We should kick him off the park.

Woudn't worry about it. The inspecter will fall down one of the holes in the pitch, never to be heard from again and the game will go ahead.

Walker is their best player. He's the one I'd expect them to say is injured then play him, to be honest.

You see the nick of the goalmouths at east end park today? It was like s throwback to the 79s

Who cares if they lie about their best players being injured time and time again. Any Hibs manager who falls for that one deserves to walk!

Aye definitely they've done that for decades now. Hopefully he plays and Daz empties him.

The drills Cathro has them doing from his laptop will be taking a few bytes out of the pitch.

Indeed. Hopefully he's hurt enough to be subbed off, but not seriously as he's a talent worth developing for Scotland.

Aye, shocking indeed but the Pars are just a tad strapped for cash so playing surface perhaps not their top priority!

Oh wait though...... :greengrin :aok: :cb

C'moan the Hibees!

Its windy and cold in Gorgie the now but dry and has been for hours. Can't see any chance of it being off.

Same the last time no?.....pretty sure it was a 'burst pipe'...in the under soil heating that flooded the pitch........sure hope they don't have similar problems

Very unlikely this will be off. Cold and windy but no prolonged periods of rain recently.

Not a chance in hell the game is at risk from the weather.

Reminds me of the weather last year but a little bit icier

Not the best conditions for football so hopefully it calms down

He signed for The Rangers a few seasons ago.

Making sure the pick up all the spuds prior to the game. It's a source of income you know and they don't want to ruin it!!

It's only a park not a Stadium. We have Easter Road Stadium while they have Tynecastle park. And just like saughton park, inverleith park and any other local park you can expect problems.

Sand, ankle breaking holes, mud and not a lot of grass then?
